For families living in Essex County Council:

Essex County Council require all families accessing Short Breaks (such as the Lambourne End Fun Days) to register with them for a unique Short Breaks Passport Number, which you can use to access all Short Breaks within the county. This means that providers won’t need to share your child’s personal data when submitting monitoring returns, and it will give Essex a clear idea of the needs of young people within Essex, which will help them to determine future Short Breaks provision.


The registration process is very straight forward, and most families are issued with their passport number within a day.  To apply for your child’s Short Breaks Passport, please visit the Short Breaks website:


If you have any questions, please contact Jo Mason via email ( or phone (03330 139889).

Short Breaks for children and young people with disabilities


We run short breaks and activity days for young people with disabilities and their families, with thanks to local authority funding. Places are first come first served and must be booked in advance.

For families living in the London Borough of Redbridge:

If you have been allocated days at Lambourne End from Redbridge, contact us to book your child on to one of our Activity Days which provide a chance for your children to take part in a variety of adventurous, farm and environmental activities. Transport can be arranged.
